Each Metal Earth model is laser etched in meticulous detail on one, two, or three 11 cm (4.33") metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions. Metal Earth models are a little less challenging than our 3D wooden puzzles, but you do need some patience and dexterity because they're also much smaller. For maximum dramatic effect, display your model on the LED Display Base or the Solar Spinner (sold separately, see the Related Products tab).
30 Rockefeller Plaza is an intermediate Metal Earth model. It consists of 29 pieces on two sheets of metal.
Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for children under 14.

Originally known as the RCA Building and then the GE Building, the Art Deco skyscraper at 30 Rockefeller Plaza is famous for housing NBC television headquarters. It was completed in 1933 as part of Rockefeller Center and was the first building constructed with its elevators in a central core. In 1996, NBC finally bought the 1,600,000 square feet that it had leased since 1933. The popular sitcom 30 Rock was set in the building and used it for exterior shots, but it was actually filmed at a studio in Queens.
